The Risk Management Dashboard
Risk Management is a module within the KnowBe4 KCM Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) platform that is available to Gold and Platinum subscriptions. This module is designed to simplify the processes of identifying, assessing, monitoring, and mitigating the various risks faced by your organization. See our Risk Management Overview article for an introduction to risk management with KCM GRC.
The Risk Dashboard page provides an overview of the risks that you've added to your risk management module. Navigate to the Risk Dashboard by clicking Risk Management > Dashboard from the navigation panel on the left-hand side of your account.
This section of the dashboard displays the top ten risks that your organization faces. The top risks are measured by the risks' inherent risk scores. To learn more about inherent risk scores, see the Inherent Risk Score section of our Risk Scoring article.
Top Riskiest Tags
This section of the dashboard provides an overview of the ten tags that hold the highest inherent risk scores from the risks in your risk register. The top ten riskiest tags are determined by the combined inherent risk scores of all risks that have the respective tag.
You can create custom risk tags and use them to better organize and easily locate risks in your risk register.
- To learn more about creating and adding tags to a risk, see the Editing Risks Within a Category section of our Risk Register article.
- Alternatively, you can create new tags for your risk management module from the Tags tab under your Account Settings area.
The table on the left-hand side under the Top Riskiest Tags area includes the details outlined below.
- Tag: The name of the tag.
- Tagged Risk Items: The number of risks that have the tag.
- Score: The total of all inherent risk scores for all risks with this tag.
- Average: The average of all inherent risk scores for all risks with this tag.
The bar graph displays the risk tags and the total of all inherent risk scores for all risks with this tag.
This section of the dashboard includes two interactive heat maps that display a matrix for the two risk scores in your account: inherent risk score and residual risk score. Each heat map's X and Y axis reflects the likelihood and impact scoring scales. To learn more, see the Risk Likelihood and Impact section of our Risk Overview article.
Risk Category Overview
This section of the dashboard provides a breakdown of your risks by category. This way, you can see what percentage of your risks are contained in each category of your risk register. To learn more, see our Risk Register article.
